The name of the Peddio farm derives from the locality where one of the company's historic olive groves is located. It was founded in the first half of the 1900s by the founder Giovanni Cocco who, together with his brothers in the owned olive groves and in those were entrusted to him, the production of oil began, distributing it in the capital of Cagliari. Years pass and the olive-growing tradition is inherited by his son Bastiano, who begins a journey of great renewal with a single goal: to produce a high quality extra virgin olive oil. In fact, he was the first in all of Montiferru to innovate the olive harvesting system bringing the first mechanical shaker to Cuglieri and also to revolutionize the traditional oil extraction systems, in fact he replaced the old stone mill with the first oil mill in continuous cycle, also called modern.
